About the Poem

Life is filled with connections and separations. Our peace is effected by how we deal with our separations. The wise live preparing to have no regrets.

A Few Visitor Comments

loss comes in so many forms,but loss is still loss. We have to learn to deal with the pain of the distance created by the loss of that person.
Beautifuly written, expresses much emotion and feeling.


Life is not lived without knowing separation.
It manifests because of desire
Or sometimes from desperation
But most times it is brought by fate.

It is one of life's painful sorrows.
There is nothing as heart wrenching
As to know separation will fill our tomorrows
Or the agony of communion never again.

We are together only for a time.
Connecting is fleeting.
We say, "You are Mine."
But all too soon our time together is gone.

To survive separation of loved ones-
We must have no regrets,
Because when the ineffable comes,
Guilt-free memories are our only salvation.
